A highly recommended , free, 48 page Technician License Study guide is available online at: http://www.kb6nu.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/2014-no-nonsense-tech-study-guide-v20.pdf .   We have noticed that in previous classes that every student that read the study guide also passed the examination (Hint).

Hams that desire to use this VEC opportunity to sit for a license upgrade also need to register to insure we have ample space for testing and the appropriate licensed volunteer examiners present.  We can accept no more than 5 license upgrades at this VEC.

Why get an Amateur Radio License?

There are many reasons to get involved with amateur radio. Beyond being a fascinating hobby, it is also a valuable communication tool for us in the Gorge! You don't have to get more than a few miles from the Columbia River and cellphone coverage becomes spotty at best. A small inexpensive handheld radio linked through repeaters on mountaintops throughout the Gorge will allow you to summon help in an emergency. In the event of a major disaster (like a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake), we can expect cellphones and landlines to be out many days to many weeks. Amateur radio will be the main method of two-way communication until normal phone systems are returned to service.
